» Internships

Around 80% of Chapman undergraduates participate in at least one internship—and about half do two or more.

Why? Because internships are a great way to get professional experience, earn academic credit and sometimes even get paid. Here are some more details on why internships are important and how we’ll help you find the right one for you.

In many cases you’ll get academic credit and/or paid for your internship. A few majors at Chapman require you to get an internship, but most majors will support you getting one regardless.

And because internships let you learn more about a career path and start networking in your industry, it’s not unusual for an internship to lead to a job offer.
